Well, gee-whillikers. I hoped to have some original stuff up this week. Alas, circumstances, distractions, and the inability to overcome both prevented that from happening. Much more reading than writing, and of the things I read, here is what most got my attention…
Big ambitions, small church. As you (hopefully!) know, we serve with Village Missions. Village Missions recently linked to this post. If you are trying to get a grip on the struggles, challenges, and opportunities for the small church pastor, take a look.

Psychiatry admits it has been wrong. Links are provided, including several written by Dr. Bob Kellemen on depression, medication, and biblical counseling.
Northwest Ministry Conference. Very privileged and honored to be able to lead a couple of workshops at this conference coming up at the end of March. If you happen to be in the area, drop in and say hello!
Penalty declined. As a fan of soccer, fair play, honesty, and integrity, this story (and accompanying video) blesses me. Well done, Aaron Hunt.
